Bush Approval Rating Lowest Ever for 2nd-Term Prez at this Point http://www.editorandpublisher.com/eandp/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1000866232
I seem to remember that the last time Bush's approval rating was on the slide 2,749 people died and his rating soared to ~90%. I also seem to remember there were a lot of exercises taking place when those people died.

"The dream of these extremists"—to blow up the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, one of the most important holy sites in the Muslim world—"should give us sleepless nights," says former Israeli Security Chief Avi Dichter. "Jewish terror is liable to create a serious strategic threat that will turn the Israeli-Palestinian conflict into a conflict between thirteen million Jews and a billion Muslims all over the world."

It is absurd to have yet another investigation into the chuckleheaded assessments on Saddam's phantom WMD that intentionally skirts how the $40 billion-a-year intelligence was molded and manufactured to fit the ideological schemes of those running the White House and Pentagon.

Two of the Americans and the Iraqi officer were killed in a pitched battle on Monday with dozens of insurgents in eastern Iraq, the American military said. The battle began at 4 p.m., when two battalions of the Iraqi Army stumbled across the guerrillas during a search for weapons in Diyala Province, the military said. American forces sent in air support and troops from the 278th Regimental Combat Team. http://www.nytimes.com/2005/04/05/international/middleeast/05cnd-iraq.html?ei=5070&en=d21b2ad212eccec0&ex=1113364800&adxnnl=1&adxnnlx=1112804286-5dSezMFRvT8b5Cd3gOJ0yg
The battle was the most recent in a string of engagements in which American and Iraqi troops have fought large bands of insurgents. Last Saturday, 40 to 60 insurgents made a coordinated assault on Abu Ghraib prison, wounding at least two dozen Americans and 13 Iraqi prisoners. Iraqi and American forces last month raided a lakeside training camp that housed about 80 insurgents north of Baghdad. That came just days after an American convoy repelled an attack by dozens of insurgents in the town of Salman Pak, southeast of Baghdad.

It was appalling when the House majority leader Tom Delay threatened political retribution against judges who did not toe his extremist political line. But when a second important Republican stands up and excuses murderous violence against judges as an understandable reaction to their decisions, then it is time to get really scared.http://www.nytimes.com/2005/04/06/opinion/06wed1.html?hp
Echoes of the political hijacking of the Terri Schiavo case hung in the air as Mr. Cornyn spoke, just days after the House majority leader, Tom DeLay, vengefully vowed that "the time will come" to make the judges who resisted the Congressional Republicans' gruesome deathbed intrusion "answer for their behavior." Trying to intimidate judges used to be a crime, not a bombastic cudgel for cynical politicians.
Was the Schiavo memo a fake? UH NO!http://www.washtimes.com/national/20050406-124141-1831r.htm
All 55 Republican senators say they have never seen the Terri Schiavo political talking-points memo that Democrats say was circulated among Republicans during the floor debate over whether the federal government should intervene to prolong her life. The memo has been cited repeatedly by columnists as evidence that Republicans were trying to exploit the dispute over Mrs. Schiavo, who died last week — 13 days after her feeding tube was removed. Some press reports also said the memo was distributed by Republican leaders — a notion the leadership offices strongly denied. UH OK!
